To Grow Their Movement, Bundys Pledge To Do ‘Whatever It Takes’

All of these efforts clearly show the Bundys are not going to go away just because their court case is resolved. They are actively searching for their next big protest — their next standoff if it comes to that — to put their point of view in the limelight.

Since the Bundys beat the federal government in court, they have been searching for new ways to get their message out and expand their following.

Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual  Ryan Bundy is running for the governor of Nevada in a long-shot bid to not just fight the government, but become the government.

His platform is vague so far and revolves around what he terms the “protection of our life, liberty and property.”

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View“I felt I have to [run for governor]. I considered others who are running. And I cannot see anyone who I can trust with protecting my rights, nor the rights of these others,” Bundy said. “And so I feel that I need to do this for the good of Nevada, for the good of the people.”

While Bundy’s campaign seems unlikely to succeed, it is not the only front the Bundys are pursuing to further their anti-government cause.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsCliven, Ryan and Ammon Bundy have all participated in speaking events around the West in the months since they left jail, many of them well-attended.

At those events, they’ve told their followers to do “whatever it takes” to continue the fight.

The Bundys have also met with other western families with land management gripes with the government. They’ve encouraged those families at times to follow in their footsteps and ignore federal policies, or call in the militia if needed.

The Bundys are trying to create a new state of mind in the American West. And by their own account, they’ll do “whatever it takes” to make that happen.

Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View

edited by

Dr Jimmy T (Gunny) LaBaume

Is now available in both PAPERBACK and Kindle

BookCoverImageMurray N. Rothbard was the father of what some call Radical Libertarianism or Anarcho-Capitalism which Hans-Hermann Hoppe described as “Rothbard’s unique contribution to the rediscovery of property and property rights as the common foundation of both economics and political philosophy, and the systematic reconstruction and conceptual integration of modern, marginalist economics and natural-law political philosophy into a unified moral science: libertarianism.”

This book applies the principles of this “unified moral science” to environmental and natural resource management issues.

The book started out life as an assigned reading list for a university level course entitled Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View.

As I began to prepare to teach the course, I quickly saw that there was a plethora of textbooks suitable for universal level courses dealing with environmental and natural resource economics. The only problem was that they were all based in mainstream neo-classical (or Keynesian) theory. I could find no single collection of material comprising a comprehensive treatment of environmental and natural resource economics based on Austrian Economic Theory.

However, I was able to find a large number of essays, monographs, papers delivered at professional meetings and published from a multitude of sources. This book is the result. It is composed of a collection of research reports and essays by reputable scientists, economists, and legal experts as well as private property and free market activists.

The book is organized into seven parts: I. Environmentalism: The New State Religion; II. The New State Religion Debunked; III. Introduction to Environmental and Natural Resource Economics; IV. Interventionism: Law and Regulation; V. Pollution and Recycling; VI. Property Rights: Planning, Zoning and Eminent Domain; and VII. Free Market Conservation. It also includes an elaborate Bibliography, References and Recommended Reading section including an extensive Annotated Bibliography of related and works on the subject.

The intellectual level of the individual works ranges from quite scholarly to informed editorial opinion.

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
